You hide in the dark so they can't see your tears;
Pain is all you've known all these years.
Cuts on your wrists and blood on the bed,
To try to kill the pain that's in your head.
The hatred and negativity you want to cease,
Just so for once your mind feels at peace.
Please throw those pills and blades away,
So you can live yet another day.
There is hope, just wait and see;
Love yourself and you will be free.
Listen to the bird's sing and the trees sway;
Embrace the sun and let your fears melt away.
Grab a coffee and talk to a friend,
They are God's treasures with an ear to lend.
Breathe in fresh air and take a stroll in the woods,
And smile as often as you should.
Look in the mirror; you're beautiful as you are
With your imperfections and your scars.
Please remember there is no one else like you;
You are loved and that is true.
When it's dark, seek the light.
Love others with all your might.
Be happy, for without a doubt,
You'll realize this is what life is all about.
